HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Greater Manchester and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Greater Manchester property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Greater Manchester property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
